These purifiers use Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) and Negative Ion Generation to purify and revitalise indoor air. These effective devices have been designed to pro-actively control & reduce the transmission of pathogens such as airborne bacteria, viruses and fungi as well as yeast and mould spores. These devices also neutralise known Carcinogens that pollute indoor air such as Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) and second-hand tobacco smoke. Additionally, to this they remove unpleasant odour particles and eliminate Sick Building Syndrome (SBS). It is very important to note that the UV lamps are enclosed inside these units with no exposure to humans, thus meaning sterilization of the air happens inside the unit and units can run continuously in areas where people are working without any risk.
Pathogens: Infectious Biological agents / germs that causes disease to its host. E.g. Tuberculosis TB, SARS and H1N1 Viruses.
Carcinogens: Substances, radionuclides, or radiation that is an agent directly involved in causing cancer.
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs): Chemical compounds which have significant vapour pressure. Anthropogenic VOCs are regulated. VOCs are not typically acutely toxic but have chronic effects on human health.
